Cant believe Ive made it this far, feeling like a non smoker now. Thanks to all for the wisdom and help. It felt like a massive mountain to climb when I first started but over time the climb got easier and the mountain turned into a small hill after a the first couple of months. Once I made it through Christmas I knew I could achieve what I had been trying to do for over 15 years. The one thing I did differently this time was that I persistantly stuck to the NOPE principal of Not One Puff Ever. If I could give one piece of advice it would be to stick rigidly to that principal and soon it becomes easier and easier . Please stick with it all you new quitters, it is so much freedom after a short period of time.
